PAPE Support in JanRain OpenID 2.0 Libraries

Just a note to let everyone know that we are developing and will release relying party libraries supporting PAPE once the specification is finalized.

We have deployed an example relying party available here:
openidenabled.com/python-openid/trunk/examples/consumer/

The example fully supports OpenID 2.0 draft 12, and can request phishing-resistant authentication using PAPE. Feel free to use it for testing.

PAPE allows sites that use OpenID 2.0 authentication to get information about the way that the user authenticated to the provider. This is an important step on the way to getting the convenience needed of OpenID authentication for higher-valued transactions. It’s trivial to implement and will be included in JanRain’s OpenID 2.0 libraries as well as Sxip’s libraries.
